    As a SHAM If I am at parent teacher conferences with all the other working moms and dads and my phone rings ( on vibrate of course) and realize that it is the repair man finally returning my call. Do I get to excuse myself saying "It is work I have to take this" :rollsmile:cap::bow::lol:

  3. Stay at home moms
    I couldn't figure out a good subject for this post so I tried going with humor - no offense intended if it came off wrong in a text-only media. I'm working part-time after a layoff, while my wife is working full-time. Our first child is due in October. I am going to be trying to orient my...
  4. Stay at home moms
    I'm a little nervous but I also feel good about this decision! I'm letting my full-time (plus sometimes!) job go to become a very very very part-time (20hr/wk) worker. Fortunately my position within the hospital pays very well and even with dropping to a very part-time position I still have...

    Hi, Just thought that in the spirit of the New Year and in keeping with my resolutions to myself, it was time to stop being such a lurker and start participating more. I've been reading FV for a long time now and enjoy it immensely. In a nutshell, I'm a SAHM of five kidlets and spend most...
  6. Stay at home moms
    My husband and I am looking at finally getting off the endless treadmill of both of us working full time. It's stressing us all out way too much and I feel like we'll eventually self destruct if it keeps going like this. Right now, I bring in about half the take home pay (I bring home...

    Ugh, I feel like a truck or two has run over me! I started a new medication (long-term) and I swear I have every side effect listed. Nausea, headache, fuzziness, fatigue... you name it. How the heck do I deal with my 3 year old and 18 month old when I feel like this? I'm not sure I've ever been...
  8. Stay at home moms
    I have been a SAHM for 16 years. My oldest is almost 16 and my youngest is 6. When my first baby was born I looked at him and knew there was NO WAY I was going to be able to leave him in someone else's hands. I adored him and didn't want to miss a single moment of his little life. As the...
  9. Debt Reduction & Money Management
    Judge our budget! Mr. Husband and I have come to the conclusion that we would like for me to SAH after Q has arrived. That will be in a few short weeks! So I'm looking at being a SAHM starting in April. I plan on doing photography to supplement on the side (100-400/month) but may not start that...

  11. Family
    That would be me. My dh works on salary so he is putting in a million hours and so am I. I have lost the desire to cook, put my makeup on, and even clean. etc. The two year old is draining my energy.(not to mention the teen) He is a really good little one, but of course I won't lie that he is...

  14. Money challenges
    Ok, I have been working for the past 8 weeks on a goal to stay home. I do not find my career path to be as challenging as it once was and my desire to stay at home and have a simpler life has been growing. My dh is on board with this idea. When the decission was made there were some things that...
  15. Pregnancy
    I am very excited that I only have 5 more months to go until I can be a SAHM. I work 40 hours a week right now at a job that I'm so tired of doing. Not only is it boring/tedious paperwork, but because the economy is suffering right now I have been given a lot more work and no extra pay. I just...
  16. Single Moms
    I would really like to be around more for my kids. I need to work full-time right now. My childsupport isn't very much and I know that I couldn't survive on just that. I shouldn't say I can't because I guess if I was in the right frame of mind or it came right down to it, I could but right now I...
  17. Stay at home moms
    I agreed last year to babysit my friends children when she went back to work. This year it has evolved into a hour in the morning before I drop off my DD and hers at school. Occasionally I will watch her older boys on school holidays. Both girls are 5 and started all day kindergarden this...

Not only that but, we take A LOT of pictures and...
